Culture and Human Resource Management – Geert Hofstede

Geert Hofstede is over 80 years old but is still a widely
active researcher, consultant, and speaker. His work on cultural dimensions
such as individualism and power distance is still widely taught and used in
evaluating international business decisions.

For this discussion, go to Youtube or Google video search
and find two videos:

1. One with Geert Hofstede himself speaking or being

2. Another video with Hofstede’s dimensions of individualism,
power distance, uncertainty avoidance, and masculinity explained. This doesn’t
have to be one with Hofstede himself appearing, just a video that you think
explains his concepts well.

Share the links with your classmates and discuss how useful
you found the videos. Did they help you understand the materials for this
module? What kind of impression did you have of Hofstede and his ideas?
